Mark Bannon, National Vice President Of Sales for Planned Furniture Promotions Inc. (PFP), an Affiliate of Gene Rosenberg Associates, LLC., announced that Andrew Winans has joined PFP as one of the company's regional managers, focusing on promotions located in the western United States. Winans will work directly with PFP's Western Sales Manager, Tom Gonzales, expanding PFP's presence in the region. Although Winans will assist with promotions throughout the United States, his primary area of focus is on retail promotions within nine western states including: California, Nevada, Arizona, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming and Utah, from his offices in Reno, NV.
Winans was formerly head of Reno based Winans Furniture, a third generation, mid-priced retailer, that was founded in 1965. Due to a poor business climate, the company closed in 2005 following a store closing promotion managed by Planned Furniture Promotions.
Said Winans, "I was so impressed with the way PFP managed our sale and with the results they achieved, that I decided to join the company. I'm looking forward to helping other retailers who are in difficult circumstances and to showing them how a successful outcome and stress relief is possible. I believe in face-to-face communication with clients and I'm ready to jump on a plane and visit and consult with any retailer at a moment's notice. Believe me, I can truly feel their pain."
Said Bannon, "Our western division is the fastest growing division in our company. With the addition of Andrew Winans to our team, we add a highly experienced professional who will help continue our growing momentum and leadership in this region. Andrew is a highly motivated leader committed to maximizing successful promotions for retailers, in a caring, professional way."
Winans resides in the Reno, Nevada area with his wife and four children. He is a graduate of Biola University in California.
About PFP: PFP is unique among other planned promotion companies in that over half of its management and executive staff is composed of former retailers and clients, like Andrew Winans, who can more effectively relate to the problems faced by current clients.
